Program Overview

LoRaWAN Academy is an all-encompassing, hands-on curriculum for university students to learn about the LoRaWAN™ open specification from the creators of LoRa® and the ecosystem that scaled its international adoption. The two-part training program includes a robust online course library as well as LoRaWAN development kits and IoT network infrastructure for hands-on lab training.

LoRaWAN is a widely adopted, standardized specification based on LoRa that is the leading LPWAN technology for wireless IoT networks worldwide. Join Semtech, creator of LoRa Technology, and an ecosystem of LoRaWAN experts within the IoT supply chain to prepare yourself, your campus and your students for next-generation wireless RF engineering.

The 10-week program is self-paced and offered on a rolling basis—no formal program start dates. Each week’s curriculum includes 4-8 hours of video lectures, supplemental reading and materials, as well as problem sets, assignments and quizzes to benchmark learning. The program culminates with a hands-on applied research project for students to build real-world IoT applications.

Content is appropriate for beginner engineering students to intermediate-level engineers looking to learn more about LoRaWAN.
